| Why Did I Watch This Movie Too?
I had doubts about watching the prequel to this movie to begin with ("Why Did I Get Married?"). It's rating upon this site is quite low, and the opinions of my peers were not very positive either. However, after viewing and being very moved by Perry's "For Colored Girls", I wanted to sample more of his artistry anyhow. Though I was apprehensive of the first movie, I did not find it to be so terrible after I saw it.

The characters introduced can sometimes come off as overly abrasive, loud, and at other times, so meager, and pitiful, that sympathy is difficult to conjure for them. Upon watching their stories further, and seeing the plights of the individuals and their relationships, the drama and madness behind all their actions become understood and somewhat justifiable, although they can at times be outlandish. As such, I chose to view their plots an exaggerated portrayal of the adversities within a marriage, rather than an exact one.

I was curious to see how the characters' lives continued after that terrible vacation in Colorado. Sadly, I killed the entire "Why did I Get Married?" enterprise for myself. In my opinion, the sequel "Why Did I Get Married Too?" very much trivialized it's predecessor. When at one point I thought that the scripts were very much related to love, loss, and moving forward, this movie has conveyed nothing to it's viewers either than; If you have low self esteem or a husband who drowns his pain and neglect with alcohol, a new man is all you need make it all better. This theme was very romantic and well deserved in the first instalment, but pressed a very negative button for me in this one, as it was both unromantic and, in my opinion, undeserving. Plus, I can't take Dwayne Johnson's face seriously. Maybe that's what ruined everything. When I see him I just think bad movies and even worse wrestling. Not to mention, he didn't really "fit" the scene. He looked awkward. I don't know how else to put it, folks. Just awkward. At any other point, I would suggest viewing it for oneself, but I'm trying to help you, so I won't.

Initially, this movie left me looking at the screen with a quizzical expression, wondering if any of these characters had learnt ANYTHING at all from the psychological studies, exercises, and scream-match trips they take annually. Upon realizing the answer was "no", I then began to feel like I, in turn, wasted my own time, having watched movies in the hopes that they would. Of course, utter peace and harmony does not a good movie make, but the extent of their drama and angst says that a lesson ought to be learnt by at least one of them BEFORE the end of the movie. Oddly enough, the only one who I thought really did so, was the only character that was single throughout the whole movie! Maybe there's a point to be made with that... But still, there was no satisfactory ending to this. However, that is by no means a reason to continue this story any further. I knew I should have stopped when I saw Angela's pink flask.
